Last week we got reviewed by SexyWidget, yesterday a small mention on TechCrunch and today with Steve O'Hear on ZDnet. Together with tens of other posts from people who seem to like the service, this is getting fun... :-)

Thank you all!

PS. If you quick enough you might still catch us on home page. Thanks again.

Platform support

Here's a quick hack that will enable you to have your box on Pageflakes.

  1. On Pageflakes, click "ADD FEED" (on the top right)
  2. Put "" + box ID (the one you get by email once you register with the service. For example, my flake URL would be )
That's it :-).

Thanks to Steve Purkiss, we now have a Drupal platform support! the instructions on how to embed the box on are on his blog and a the Drupal module is here.

We've got few users requesting support for . If anyone from Wordpress is reading this, please drop us a line...

Microsoft Spaces - after watching this guy doing it, we went and tried it ourselves. It works. When creating a box, just choose the MySpace/HTML only option and copy the generated code into Spaces HTML Sandbox Gadget.

Widget first

We've been told that we are the first widget to put out a different face when rendered to the site owner vs. site visitor (implemented on the "My network" bar).

Is that true?

And how about the "love me" buttons on the About bar?

...and some more features

This week we've been busy incorporating the latest crop -

Drop me a line - now you can receive e-mail from your visitors via the LinkedInABox service, without exposing your email address over the web.
(Being a LinkedIn dependent service...) we only allow LinkedIn users to send a post.
This enables us to include a reference to their public LinkedIn profile so you can use it as sort of "credibility" system and have a better understanding of who is the person behind the mail.

My network - when you invoke your own box in your browser, the box will display a private view(your visitors will not see it) of your LinkedIn account service: unread items, connection updates, questions and jobs on your network.

LinkedIn Public Profile - a link to your public LinkedIn profile, just beneath the box.

Added color

Today we've added the ability to choose skins for the box and add a background image (as my friend and Oscar-winner wannabe Yaniv demonstrates to the right).

If you already have the widget installed, you will need to go through the customization process again and copy/paste the new generated code.


Oh, and one more thing - please check out the "Connected?" tab. Once you log-in with the service, it will automatically resolve connectivity level between you and box owners you will visit. Expect some more stuff to build on that...
